Joy Clair - Hello Autumn - Guest Designer

Hello everyone!  Starting today and for a couple of days this week I'm thrilled to be Guest Designing for a New company, Joy Clair.  They have a wonderful New Release and a great line up of Guest Designers so I hope you will join us this week.

Today, the stamp set that we are featuring is called Hello Autumn.

This is the card that I designed using of the the leaf stamps and a sentiment from the Hello Autumn Clear Stamp Set.  I started with a piece of Strathmore Mixed Media paper.  I love using this paper for watercolor because it is so smooth.  It is a very thick and heavy paper and I love the results.  I used painters tape to mask off the outer edges.  Then I stamped the leaf image with Jet Black StazOn ink.  

I used Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolors to paint the image and the background.  After the watercolor was completely dry then I watered down some of the black paint and added the tiny black paint splatters to the image.  Once everything was dry then I carefully removed the painters tape. Then I stamped the sentiment using Jet Black StazOn ink.

For the base of the card I used black cardstock and I added a few bits of black bling to the top corner.

Please be sure to visit the Joy Clair Blog to see all of the New Releases and for a chance to win some stamps!  Also please be sure to visit the link list below with some wonderful Guest Designers.

I will be back on Wednesday with another card to share with you from the Joy Clair New Release.
